The description of the game reads as follows:


Quote
A captivating mystery set in the shadowy realm of magic and illusion.
Over 50 perplexing puzzles, mind-bending mazes, and confounding conundrums.
Original soundtrack by Nox Arcana.
In-game art gallery featuring dozens of eerie works of art by Joseph Vargo.
Detailed walkthrough from Doctor Arcana himself.


According to the last sentence, it sounds like the game has a built-in walkthrough. Look around in-game and see if you can find it (or maybe some kind of hint system?). I don't have the game or I would check it out myself.

There is an in-game walkthrough, but I can see why you wouldn't want to use it.

This jeering humor carries over into the game as well. Players are subjected to taunting remarks from Doctor Arcana throughout their adventure and lost souls who consult the in-game walkthrough, aptly named The Cheater's Compendium, will be scolded and ridiculed for doing so.

I wonder why they thought that would be a good idea.

I suspect they thought this would be a good idea because I believe I read that the 7th Guest was one of the games that inspired the developer of Cabinets of Dr. Arcana.

From Wikipedia on the 7th Guest:

Quote
The main antagonist, Henry Stauf, is an ever-present menace, taunting the player with clues, mocking the player as they fail his puzzles ("We'll all be dead by the time you solve this!"), and expressing displeasure when the player succeeds ("Don't think you'll be so lucky next time!").

Didn't many people complain about Stauf's nagging though?

Jenny100: They say there's an in-game w/t. Don't see it - only an advert for utube's w/t - unless I'm blind!

According to the Adventuregamers review

a complete walkthrough with step-by-step solutions and screenshots for each and every puzzle is included as a bonus accessible from the game’s main menu.

I can't remember if people complained about the nagging, Jenny - it's been too long.
